H-storage and nano clusters

Joint PhD student: Gopi Krishnan
In this project the emphasis lies on the high surface to volume ratio of nano clusters for the uptake of H by metallic systems. A main challenge is to design a system for fast uptake but also fast release of H. High resolution electron microscopy is the principal experimental method to perform a careful analysis of the various crystallographic phases formed. (joint efforts with dr. B.J. Kooi and dr. G. Palasantzas).
